Audition Call

सूरज का सातवाँ घोड़ा

written by Dharamvir Bharati, adapted for the stage by Vipul Srivastava
directed by Vikas Dhurka
produced by Mugdha Kulkarni
(in Hindi, with supertitles in English)
Over slices of melon during lazy summer afternoons, Manik Mulla tells his listeners three inter-related love stories that end in heart-break, confusion or somewhere in between. Based on Bharati’s acclaimed novella, सूरज का सातवाँ घोड़ा (The Seventh Horse of the Sun) straddles these three stories and seems to draw conclusions, until it does not.
